Flood risk subsides. Emergency response stands down.

Service Announcement

With a shift in the forecast to warmer temperatures and drier days, the flood risk has subsided and the City is standing down its emergency response. The State of Local Emergency instated to allow the City to access private property during the flash rain event has been lifted and the City’s Emergency Operations Centre is standing down. Sandbags installed to protect the Okanagan Lake Marina will be removed this week. Any further questions or concerns related to this event should be directed to Public Works at 250-490-2500.

While the flood risk has subsided, lake levels are still high and flows in the creeks and the channel are moving fast. Residents are advised to exercise caution when floating the channel or recreating near the creeks. The City would like to thank residents for their support during this time of elevated flood risk.
